The process of knotting got my youngest daughter thinking and she decided to take some gimp leftover from a girl scout troop project and use the gimp to create a trio of delightfully playful rings.

Gather your tools and materials. Determine what color gimp you want to use.
Tie the gimp around the finger for which you want to make a ring.
Remove the gimp from your finger.
Continue to finish a square knot to create the ring. Tighten the knot. Adjust as needed. You can add a drop of glue to secure the knot, but if you pull the knot tight the glue is not needed.

Trim the excess gimp from both sides of the square knot.
Repeat to create the second and third ring for the trio.
